We have a 7mo old red poll bull that we bought hoping to winter and then turn out with our cows next spring. We're surpised to find him, however, very interested in our cows now! Although he is too small right now to reach the adult cows....he is trying. Is this little guy fertile...should he "connect"? We had hoped to pasture him with the cows this winter so we only had to heat one water tank. Now we're wondering if he needs to be moved far from the scent of the cows who are coming in heat after calving. We also don't want him to injure himself. Our other thought is to sell him and rent a bull next spring. Tell this newbie cow person how best to handle this situation. Seems like this cow raising doesn't always go according to plan.
